Rugby legend and world champion, and creator of fashion label Raging Bull, Phil Vickery can certainly lay claim to being a man of many talents. Not content with a glittering rugby career and launching the hugely successful Raging Bull clothing brand he has now proved he can cook too.
After a grueling few weeks as a contestant on BBC TV’s Celebrity Masterchef Phil emerged on Saturday as a very worthy champion. “It was one of the hardest things I have done” said Phil “I was actually nervous about facing John and Greg and although the competitive side of me wanted desperately to win it was still a big shock when it happened!”
For a burly rugby player Phil showed a surprisingly deft touch in the kitchen producing some memorable dishes. Some of his memorable dishes included a Basque seafood stew, chocolate and orange bread and butter pudding and scallops with black pudding, crisp prosciutto and apple puree.
Well done Phil, we’re very impressed!
